What are the best things to buy in Costa Rica?
Question by pdx_girl: What are the best things to buy in Costa Rica?
I am going to Costa Rica later this week. What things are good to buy there? I know coffee, but what else? What is cheap compared to the US? Are there any cool cultural things I should keep an eye out for?

There are many women who work with wood and different types of tree seeds to make unique and interesting jewelry. Costaricans also work with coconut, coffee paper, banana and tobacco leafs in much of there handcrafts. Something I really love and find beautiful are the jewelry boxes with the Blue Morpho butterfly framed to the cover. You can also buy the frames separately with the Blue Morpho or other types of butterflies.
Warning : Beware of those who might try to rip you off by charging you much more than they should.
You also asked ” what is cheap compared to the US?” Fruit is! If you don’t think you’ll get sick try the different types of fruits in the country like Mamon and Guayaba (I’m not sure what is in season right now).You can also try there fabulous natural juices like Mora and Cas.
I hope you enjoy your trip and are able to find unique and interesting things to bring back home.
